UFC 118 – RECAP

This will probably upset a lot of fight fans, but I have never been more disappointed with a fight card than I was last night. There was so much potential for great fights on that schedule. Instead, what I saw was nothing but one-sided victories. Don’t get me wrong. There were a few great moments…

Final picks for UFC 118

Armando sent me his picks from the road so, he’s what we look like. Pretty much the same on the main card. Armando Casey Steelers Lentz Winner Lentz Ruediger Lauzon Lauzon Davis Davis Diaz Florian Florian Florian Maia Maia Maia Couture Couture Couture Penn Penn Penn

Casey’s UFC 118 Picks

This card looks stacked top to bottom. I’m kinda disappointed that we’re not going to see the 3 fights that are on the prelim card. Alright, Steelers covered the hyperbole so let’s skip that and get right to the fights. Andre Winner vs. Nik LentzThis is an interesting match-up of the shootfighter vs. the wrestler.…

Steelers’ Picks – UFC 118 EDGAR v. PENN 2

UFC 118 is coming up. I feel it is only fair that I go ahead and make my predictions first. Should be a great card with some potentially outstanding fights. The rematch of Edgar v. Penn will prove whether or not Edgar is a legit champion. Couture v. Toney will determine which over-the-hill fighter is…

Qucik standings update

As we close in on the final event of August, I finally remembered to update the standings after Saturday night’s Strikeforce event. The order is the same, but since Steelers and I has some mild success I am right on Armando’s heels and working on climbing out of the basement. Strikeforce: Houston – Round 3…

Strikeforce: Houston Main Card Results

All-in-all, this has been a pretty bad night for Strikeforce. Two of its biggest stars get finished, and another wins via a pair of illegal strikes that go unnoticed. The only good thing for the promotion was Daniel Cormier’s preliminary thwomping of Jason Riley… at least one of its rising stars did what he was…

SF:HOU Picks – Armondo

Gonna make this one short and sweet, as I got some Wii’in to do. Mario Kart here I come! HW: Bobby Lashley vs. Chad Griggs Lashley is a beast, and will one day be the champion of some non-UFC promotion. I said it, and I stand by it. Wrestling is king nowadays, especially when it’s…

Strikeforce Houston Picks

Really not much to write about this time. The card seems to be fairly cut and dry as to who will win the fights. I can’t really say anything that Casey hasn’t already analyzed, so see his post for details about the match-ups and fighter info. Without further ado: Bobby Lashley vs. Chad Griggs: LASHLEY…

Strikeforce: Houston Picks

So I just looked at the calendar and realized that Strikeforce’s next offering will be tomorrow night and I hadn’t even thought about it yet. I know many wouldn’t care enough to remember the card is happening, but there’s potential here and, above all, the chance to see King Mo fight again. I won’t be…

Instant Reactions: WEC 50

It’s just before 1am in the east and because of work, I am just now catching the card on the replay. Now thanks to some media slips (and some smack talk) I know some of the outcomes so I’ll give you my instant reactions as the fights happen (on the replay) then update the pick…
